Nosiy neighbour's win the EPL

In a final day match that had so much at stake for both Man City and QPR, the league and survival respectively, we had a contender for match of the season. The excitement, the intensity, this game had it all. At one stage it seemed like City had lost the league until an extra time winner from Sergio Aguero, for me their player of the season, gave them all three points and the English Premier League title for the first time in 44 years. QPR would have Stoke City to thank as their equalizer against Bolton Wanderers from the spot ensured QPR's safety in the league condemning Bolton to Championship football next season.

In other results Koscielny's header against West Brom guaranteed Arsenal a place in next season's Champions League, Tottenham Hotspur finish the season in fourth spot and might be in for the qualifying round of the Champions League provided Chelsea lose in the Finals against a Bayern Munich side who have the advantage of playing in their stadium. Newcastle would have to be content with a spot in the Europa League after a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Everton ended their hopes of a place in next season's UCL. This is the first time in a long while in the EPL that all three promoted teams have survived relegation.

This was a very exciting season for me in the EPL, can't wait till the next one kicks off in August. Though i would miss Bolton sorely next season maybe it was about time they relegated. Did City deserve the league? To me they did, might have been a bit cruel if Man United snatched it in the dying minutes of the season, what do you think? Surely Man City would be stronger next season right? Would love to hear your opinions
